Passed my learners test today (2/07/15)! This site was extremely helpful. Studied the blue k53 book first and went through those questions as well as this mock test. Made the actual test a breeze. Good luck everyone, prepare well.
Thank you for an amazing site, and for it being free and accessible to all.
